Plant Perennials & Biennials Pronto!
We're getting a jump on Spring – you can, too!

We interrupt our regularly scheduled program of gorgeous gardens in bloom to show you what our demonstration beds REALLY look like this time of year. Annuals – done for the season – have been ripped out, perennials have been cut back and the beds have been top-dressed with a fluffy and nourishing 1" layer of organic grapeseed compost. Maybe it isn't glamorous now, but it will be come Spring! So what's next? Why, the fun part!

If you garden in temperate climes like ours, from now until December you can – no wait – you NEED to plant biennials, perennials and even some hardy annuals in order to have a spectacular and bloomiferous garden come Spring!

Not sure what to do in the garden this time of year?
